Emergency Preparedness Saves Lives
Avoid the devastation of a fire emergency with good preparation.
“… embers can travel up to 3 miles in the air and land in, on or around houses.”

Remove dead plants and leaves. Trim branches that overhang your home, porch and deck. Clear debris from roofs and gutters.
Sharing accurate, current information is critical in an emergency. EPIC uses technology that can effectively get that information out when the Internet is out.
When they hit, you have seconds to react. Preparing your plan can make those seconds count. Be ready to move when the earth starts shaking.
The damage is done. But dangers can still exist from aftershocks and smoldering fire that reignites. How do you get back to “normal”?

Emergency Communications – Introducing ECHO
ECHO is the Emergency Communication for Home Occupants. EPIC-FSC has created a program for you to successfully navigate communications at the start of an emergency, during the event and throughout the recovery phase.
The first step is education. EPIC offers communication resources whereby you may schedule a visit with one of our experts to guide you through how you can purchase a radio and, more importantly, use your radio to maintain communication. In addition, we will also be including timely updates via our website as well as other sources.
Extreme wildfire conditions and loss of life and property are increasing. Residents play a key role in reducing the risks.
